6:32 am
some bad damage because he hit several vehicles parked on the road and moving vehicles. sfpd brought witnesses to look at the car and they say that that car, a white toyota pickup truck, matches the one that was involved in the hit-and-run accident. the accident happened last night when the boy was walking just in front of his family and he was hit at the mission street crosswalk. >> a large white toyota pickup truck was proceeding northbound on new montgomery which is the wrong direction. the truck turned left westbound on mission street and struck the child, who was apparently in the crosswalk. >> reporter: the driver didn't stop after hitting the boy and continued west on mission street hitting numerous cars as well as moving vehicles. then he hopped on the freeway just south of market street. and that pursuit continued until he eventually was detained in hayward. now, the boy is in critical condition right now with life- threatening injuries.
6:33 am
and police are still investigating why this man was driving the wrong way down the street. it's mission street just over my right shoulder that's only southbound. the man was driving northbound. they are still trying to figure out why this guy was going the wrong way. we'll have more details for you as we get them. >> thank you, kristy seifkin in san francisco. in other news a woman is dead and a man is in custody this is as a result of a stabbing in san jose. police found the body early this morning when they were called to an apartment on albany drive on the city's west side. now, officers found a 48-year- old man near the crime scene. they took him into custody and are trying to determine a motive. it is the city's first new homicide in nearly two months although this year's pace still higher than normal. 6:33. a surprising jobs report is driving the market higher this morning easing the impact of yesterday's big sell-off on wall street. the nation's unemployment rate fell a tenth of a percent in july to 9.1%. these are live numbers now. the market as you can see,
6:34 am
rebounding in a big way up 156 points so far. it just opened. 117,000 jobs were created last month. both those numbers are better than economists expected. the market reflecting that early on this morning. now, markets all around the world though fell today after the worst day on wall street since 2008. yesterday asian around european markets closed lower on the worries that the u.s. may be sliding once again into a recession. and europe's debt crisis is getting worse. 86% of americans say the economy is in bad shape. that is the finding of a new cbs news/new york times poll. a record 82% of americans disapprove of the way congress is doing its job. and they are divided over the president's handling of the debt ceiling talks. 47% disapprove, 46% approve. kcbs moneywatch reporter jason brooks has your moneywatch report in less than 10 minutes, plenty to talk about there. he will be coming up shortly. just a couple of hours the

6:36 am
construction jobs at sfo and san jose international airport on a new tower ramp and taxiway as well as 70,000 jobs all across the country. we are still waiting for the president's signature which some workers say can't happen soon enough. even though some still fear their jobs may be on the line. >> he didn't say it was going to be done for sure. he said it's supposed to be. that tells me that, hey, there is still some morphin nagleing to go on. -- still some more finagling to go on. >> reporter: this temporary agreement expires september 16. it doesn't address what led to the partial shutdown in the first place or cuts to rural airports. so the president is expected to sign it today and all these construction projects could hopefully begin again as early as next monday. so next week. grace, frank, back to you. >> thank you, elizabeth wenger in san francisco. -- elizabeth wenger at oklahoma international airport, thank you. 6:36. we have traffic and weather now. he would start off with mr.

the kincaids live here. across the street, the padillas. ben and his family live here, too. ben's a re/max agent, and he's a big part of this community. there are lots of reasons why re/max agents average more sales than other agents. experience, certainly. but maybe it's also because they care about the markets they serve and the neighbors who rely on them. nobody sells more real estate than re/max.

6:48 am
meaningfully work away at unemployment. but still part of the reason why the stock market sold off so much yesterday was that really it wasn't much expected in the jobs report today so being that it's better than expected, that could provide a little bit of relief but we have a long ways to go to catch up to yesterday's absolute beatdown. let's look right now. the dow is up by 97 points. nasdaq up 2. s&p up 9. oil picking up a little bit about 25 cents at $87 a barrel near the mid-february high. gases prices may go down a bit. linkedin record its earnings better than expected. but its shares are down almost 5%. and san jose-based brocade communications makes network gear says it will miss revenue projections when it reports earnings monday. its shares are down 25%. >> ow. >> frank and grace? >> can you coin that phrase, absolute beatdown? >> reporter: we heard that
